Pompey are desperate to kick-start their bid for Championship survival.
And where better to do it than at the home of their most fierce rivals Southampton.
The Blues head to St Mary’s for a 1pm kick-off with the league leaders.
Michael Appleton knows he must pick the team up after their 5-1 humbling at the hands of Burnley last weekend.
Pompey are entrenched in the relegation zone, needing to string results together to make a push for safety.
However, there should be no greater motivation than a derby battle.
So how would you tackle the latest south coast showdown?
Would you shake up the team after the Burnley defeat or pick the same personnel to make amends?
And what do you reckon the final score will be?
